    Syosset, NY Store + Service Center + (unconfirmed) Supercharger

    From jtodtman on the TM forums:

    "Confirmed by a Service Writer at Queens Service Center that Syosset Service Center on Long Island in NY will have Superchargers. Syosset was supposed to be operational this week but it's been pushed back to the second week in Jaunary. The location will be 277 Robbins lane, Syosset. This will help immensely in weekend trips between the city and the Hamptons."

    277 robbins lane syosset ny 11791 - Google Maps

    If anyone in the area can take a look at this area and give us a report, that would be great.

    Would this be the first service center with a supercharger?

    Looks like this will be a store as well as a service center and possibly a supercharger.

    Anyone in the area close enough to go take a look?

    jtodtman at the TM forum posted a picture of the four chargers under construction and said they would be operational January 17th.

    SuperChargers cost $160000 and up. Stores are usually in malls. And Service Centers operate at cost, not profit. Plus, often, no room.

    But they already own or lease the land so why not use it if they can for more Superchargers ....

    Looks like the service center is now open. The hours are now listed on the website. And it no longer says "coming soon."

    Another confirmation that Syosset, NY is operational. Rbgliny on the TM forums charged there successfully yesterday.

    I think that Omar Phillips is the acting manager of the SC. He was my SC adviser in Queens and is FANTASTIC regarding customer service, etc. I'm glad to have him closer to home so I don't have to trek all the way to Queens!

    Thanks Hank42. That's got to be very handy for the service center.

    Big things..

    They have a large facility and parking/storage lot. I forsee this location being primed for prepping large quantities of vehicles prior to delivery. They can (super)charge them and then line them up for delivery. Heck, in the future, they could even ship cars in by train as they are adjacent to the railroad. Ok, so that's probably NOT economically feasible, but it is GREEN!

    The location is a little strange however. A far better location would have been the long abandoned Ford/TVR dealer 1/2 mile away as it is located on a very visible main artery, and convenient to local shops/food establishments/office center. That location has much better defined service bay area, as well as a showroom and easy in, easy out access. I guess Tesla doesn't want to follow the dealer model, but sometimes it might be good to shed some of that eco-ego in favor of increased sales and better customer service.

    The only thing I CAN say about the location is that there is a proposed mall being built right next door (Other side of the tracks) that may never see the light of day - but even with that, this location will never see the kind of traffic the other location sees.
